Many Hollywood actresses have sprawling closets with piles and piles of fabulous footwear—but Bling Ring star Emma Watson goes against the grain with only eight, count 'em, eight pairs to her name.
The actress, who covers the August issue of Teen Vogue, reveals in a recent Radio Times interview that her shoe closet is not the colossal Louboutin kingdom that exists in Paris Hilton's home (and she would know—certain scenes for The Bling Ring were filmed in Hilton's closet).
Entertainment Weekly's Owen Gleiberman also gave Watson's new film a positive assessment, remarking that "In the end, of course, the members of the Bling Ring did get caught. Which finally made them, too, into 'celebrities.' The movie is a comic ode to how cheap our 15 minutes of fame has become."
In the Radio Times interview, Watson echoes these sentiments when commenting on the material nature of stardom: "There's a whole new definition to celebrity now. And I think that's why you see a lot of actors blanching at being associated with that word ‘celebrity' because it's become something that isn't really associated with having a craft… But it's easy for me to sound like a total hypocrite because, of course, I'm dressed in designer clothes right now."
We have to admire Emma for being honest and for being so thrifty with footwear although—knowing how stylish Ms. Watson is—we'd bet the pairs she does own are fab!
